Yellow Gold is Warming Up Again




Yellow Gold
Finally Warms Up


From the legend of King Midas to the 24K gold leaf on this writer’s very own iPhone case, humans have been obsessed with gold pretty much forever. And for good reason: its luscious hue, its malleability, the way it warms when worn against the skin — gold offers a lot to love. Nothing says classic luxury more than the gleam of gold.

Right Angles Create Unexpected Magic

There’s almost nothing more exciting in design than a well-placed angle: two crisp lines meeting in just the right way, creating an unexpected shape. The art deco era set the bar high for geometric jewelry, but today’s contemporary jewelry holds its own when it comes to clean, sharp, ultra-chic angles. These yellow gold pieces are sleek, interesting, and packed with style.
